| Deadlines are looming for DebConf10 - some 
| have already passed. For example, the last 
| day to submit a BoF (Birds of a Feather) 
| talk has come and gone. There is still 
| lots you can do for DebConf10 however 
| including volunteering time, lending 
| equipment, and even donating money. 
| Sponsors and donors are needed to help 
| defray the costs of holding DebConf10 as 
| Raphael Geissert wrote on his blog.


Pieces of the roaming laptop puzzle in Debian

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, the last piece of the puzzle for 
| roaming laptops in Debian Edu finally 
| entered the Debian archive. Today, the new 
| libpam-mklocaluser package was accepted. 
| Two days ago, two other pieces was 
| accepted into unstable. The pam-python 
| package needed by libpam-mklocaluser, and 
| the sssd package passed NEW on Monday. In 
| addition, the libpam-ccreds package we 
| need is in experimental (version 10-4) 
| since Saturday, and hopefully will be 
| moved to unstable soon.



Interview: Steve McIntyre of Debian

| hO: Lenny is out, which is great news. Debian has a history of very long
| release cycles, compared to other distros. "release when ready" is the
| project's motto. Will that be changing in the near future?
| SM: To a certain extent, that policy already has changed. In the past, we
| didn't mention potential release dates at all and we'd simply aim to release
| when certain goals had been met. For the last two release cycles, we have
| instead tried to pick a target release window (18-24 months from the previous
| release) and some goals that should fit that target date. In each of those
| releases (Etch and Lenny), I'm happy that we have hit the target with both
| taking 22 months. It would be nice to be closer to the beginning of that
| window, but it's difficult to guarantee that we'll get there every time when
| we're working as volunteers.
